Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

What's cooking in La Cuisine d'Hélène today? I started my day with a hot cup of coffee to warm my hands because we have been having fall weather in Ottawa, it's cold outside. When the days get colder I like to bake. It's no secret to anyone that I am a peanut butter fan. I am known to hide a jar in my suitcase when I travel. I need my daily dose of peanut butter. It was a no brainer to decide to bake these Butter-For-You Peanut Butter Cookies today. And the best thing about these cookies is that they use only 3 ingredients and one bowl. Don't you love those recipes? I do, and now that school is starting soon we need those quick, fast recipes. These peanut butter cookies are a favourite snack here. Serve them on a nice plate with fruits when your kids come home from school. I like to eat them with a glass of almond milk or a cup of tea.

My two sons are starting university and college on September 2nd this year. They both love salads and I am going to send them to school with these cute Rubbermaid LunchBox. Have you seen those in stores yet? They are so cute, I like the vibrant green and blue colours. They stack together and they have a special container for your salad dressing. And a fun thing to do with these containers is that you can buy individual containers and configure them the way you like. How cool is that? If you buy them you will find inside $10 off coupon on participating Kraft products. The first salad I might make for them is this yummy Asian Quinoa Salad with Shrimps. That will give them energy for a long afternoon in class.

Back to my cookies, they are so good that I will probably bake them during the holidays and bring them as a gift for my nieces. I'm sure they will enjoy this treat!


1 cup Light Kraft Smooth Peanut Butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

I like to use a small ice cream scoop to make the cookie balls. I spray the scoop with PAM and the dough does not stick.
